Easily Manage, Host and Publish Your Documentation in the Cloud with MadCap Central

MadCap Central provides a secure cloud-based content and project management environment integrated with powerful on-premises authoring and publishing.

A Modern UI Makes Organizing Your Cloud-based Content Easy and Personalized

MadCap Central’s user interface makes it easy to organize your content, projects, teams and users. A customizable dashboard makes working personalized and efficient.

One Centralized Location to Manage Projects and Content

With the extensive project and content management capabilities, you can upload projects, import projects from other users, assign users to specific projects, set project statuses, receive notifications for activities and much more, all from a single location. 

MADCAP CENTRAL ALLOWS USERS TO:

Upload and Host MadCap Flare Projects

Keep track of your MadCap Flare projects, all within MadCap Central. Uploading (or binding) your projects makes it easy to host your outputs directly through MadCap Central. You no longer need to rely on FTP publishing or get your IT department involved to publish live websites. Additionally, when you upload your Flare project, a copy is saved via cloud storage. Users with access to your account can keep local and cloud versions of the project, synchronizing changes with integrated source control.

 

Import Flare Projects

Need a copy of a Flare project that’s been uploaded by another user? With MadCap Central, you can download Flare projects that have been uploaded to the cloud

Assign Users to Projects

Manage your resources and let your team know which projects to work on and prioritize next. Individual users or teams can be assigned to any project, or multiple projects at once.

Set and Manage Status of Projects

Manage the status of the project from beginning to end. When you upload a project, it is automatically set to “Activated”. You can set a project to “Archive” if you want to keep a copy of the files in the cloud, but you no longer need the output. You may set a project to “Lock” when you no longer want to make changes, but you need to retain the output.

Monitor Projects with the Project Dashboard

When you open the Projects page in MadCap Central, you have three different ways to view projects:

  • Project Dashboard: As the default view for a project, the Project Dashboard can be populated with widgets, giving you additional information on the project.
  • Build Management: This view lets you generate, open and manage outputs from a target.
  • Repository: Helpful for troubleshooting files, the Repository view lets you see the read-only view of all the files in your project.

Get Notifications on Projects

MadCap Central can alert you when certain activities take place. In user settings, you can select how you receive notifications, either through the Notification Center, via email or Slack.

Get notified on when builds are started, stopped and completed; users are added and removed from a project; teams are edited; comments are left on tasks; projects are deleted; and much more.

Customize Your Dashboard and Add Widgets for Important Project Information

Customize your dashboard with widgets – objects that let you see important information at a glance – for quick and easy access to calendars, build history, cloud storage usage, project properties and more.

Manage Your Users, Profiles, Permissions and More in One Location

The Users tab lets you see and manage all of your users associated with your account. Manage profiles, add users, set permissions and more.

 

Manage Users From a Single Page

The Users page lets you manage and view all users on a license key. From the Users page, you can view a user’s details, status and recent activity.

Easily Invite Users

Users can be invited one at a time or added in bulk. Or if you have multiple users you need to add to a license, they can quickly be added by uploading a CSV file.

Set Custom Permissions for Users

Users can be granted a variety of permissions in MadCap Central. Permissions can be set globally for all projects or separately for individual projects. Decide which users have the ability to create tasks, upload new projects, run and schedule builds, and more.

Assign Users to Teams and Projects

Manage the status of the project from beginning to end. When you upload a project, it is automatically set to “Activated”. You can set a project to “Archive” if you want to keep a copy of the files in the cloud, but you no longer need the output. You may set a project to “Lock” when you no longer want to make changes, but you need to retain the output.

Get Notified on Important Changes

Want to get notified when changes are made to a project? Users have the option to receive notifications for certain events, such as completed builds, newly created tasks and checklists, deleted users and more.

Cloud-based Editor for Streamlined Contribution and Review with MadCap Flare

Allow anyone in your organization to contribute and review Flare content using MadCap Central’s cloud-based editor. Subject matter experts, authors and other non-Flare users can easily create and review content using an integrated cloud-based workflow.

Benefits of this Review Workflow Include:

Cloud-based Editor

Subject matter experts do not need to download and install any software to access or edit a file. The contribution and editing workflow is simple, completely integrated and takes place in the cloud.

Concurrent Multi-User Authoring and Review

Multiple people — SMEs, authors and non-Flare users alike — can contribute, make changes and add comments to the same topic or snippet with simultaneous editing.

Easy-to-Use Interface

The lightweight editor offers a streamlined interface, and SMEs only see options and features that are relevant to the contribution and review process.

Team Collaboration

Enhance team collaboration with SMEs (and other authors) by viewing and working with the same Flare content and projects concurrently.
